James Levine in Person

Join us in person on Thursday, April 6 at 7 PM as James Levine presents his book, When Trauma Grips Our Children.

About the Book

Trauma in children varies in how it presents--in behavior, emotions, learning, and social interactions--and how to address it depends largely on its presentation. Children may exhibit many types of behavior that could be attributed to trauma, such as telling lies and feeling shame, lacking focus or having outbursts in class, and distrusting peers and adults, among many more.

When you read this book, you'll learn how to support a child with severe trauma by employing a sensitive yet structured approach. Discussion of a kaleidoscope of case studies using the new Basic Pyramid model, developed by the author, will help you to determine appropriate intervention.

About the Author

James Levine, Ph.D., is author of numerous articles as well as two books, “Learning from Behavior” and, now, “When Trauma Grips Our Children.”  He has worked with children since 1980, first as a 7th grade teacher in Eugene, OR and then as a clinician in various settings.  For the past 25 years, he was the founding director of aa multi-disciplinary organization offering outpatient therapy, psychological evaluations, and school consultation.  The focus of Jim’s work has been school-based, helping districts across the country understand the intersection of trauma, mental health, learning, and behavior.  Trauma has long existed in the shadows, especially among children, and it is only in recent years that recognition of the public health, educational, and individual impact of trauma has emerged.  This book explores how to support these children, offering both a clear overview of what it means to grow up with trauma as well as a model for how to help them.
